If you have been charged with Driving While Intoxicated in New Jersey, you are subject to severe monetary penalties, extensive loss of driving privileges, possible mandatory installation of ignition interlock devices and in many cases jail. Penalties range from a maximum of one (1) year loss of your license for a first offense; with a possible 30 days in jail, to a mandatory ten (10) year loss and six months in jail for a third or subsequent offense of Driving Under the Influence pursuant to N.J.S.A. 39:4-50. Charges for DUI are handled in the Municipal Court located in the town you were charged and are not permitted to be “plea bargained” in the State of New Jersey. That is, without raising specific legal defenses to the elements of the DUI offense, the Municipal Prosecutor cannot extend any plea deals on your case. Therefore it is extremely vital that you speak to an attorney with specific knowledge, skill and experience in the area of DWI law to effectively assess and thereafter represent you on your matter.
